When the country is in chaos, everybody has a plan to fix it — But it takes a leader of real understanding to straighten things out. Proverbs 28:2 (TM)
I’m sick of political ads. It’s another seven weeks until the Iowa Caususes and here in Iowa you can’t spit without hitting a Presidential candidate. You can’t turn on the television without being bombarded constantly with the political ads. There are regular knocks on the door from campaign hoofers (on Sunday…in Pella!). The phone rings every night with pollsters asking questions and pre-recorded campaign messages. God help us all.
I don’t know who I’m going to vote for, and I will vote. I’ve heard enough of everyone’s plans to fix the war, fix the economy, fix health care and fix social security. I’m looking for a candidate of "understanding" as the verse today says. I want a President who isn’t just in it for the power or the politics. I want someone whose understanding extends beyond the problems to the root of the issues and the issues of our human condition from which they spring.
